Wednesday August 25 2021
We are stuck under a ridge of high pressure. This is allowing heat and pollution to build with little mixing. We also still have some smoke aloft from western wildfires.
A Code Orange Air Quality Alert has been issued for much of our region. Primarily a suggestion for sensitive groups.
The heat index values will be building to and above 100 for some over the next few days.
Morning Surface Weather
High Pressure continues to dominate. The air quality is low and the chance of storms will be limited.

A cluster of storms will try to form in the afternoon, but appears to run unto a road block by evening. Here we see the simulation showing it fading away as it reaches the suburbs west of Baltimore and Washington.
